With year-round warm temperatures, white sand, sapphire ocean views and a backdrop of colored cliffs, Brazil’s Coqueirinho beach offers a touch of secluded luxury just a stone’s throw away from nearby Joao Pessoa city. With ocean view and beachfront homes and lots priced at under $200K, Coquerinho is an affordable and attractive option for health-conscious retirees. See the following article from International Living for more on this.
Joao Pessoa is a beautiful Brazilian city—yet overlooked and affordable. It’s warm and sunny year-round…and ideal for younger, health-conscious retirees.
It’s one of the oldest cities in Brazil’s Northeast and has 25 miles of beach.
But my favorite beach in Brazil is south of Joao Pessoa, on a section of coast abundant with secluded, pristine beaches. This is where I discovered Coqueirinho.
It has year-round warmth, white sand, sapphire water…and an added touch of luxury.
At Coqueirinho, colored cliffs are the backdrop to an open-air beachside restaurant, the perfect place for an alfresco lunch. We shared a tasty selection of appetizers and fresh-cooked fish while we relaxed in the tranquil setting.
A 6,458-square-foot lot beside the beach has an asking price of $183,488. It is the only beachfront property we could find, despite an extensive search. There is one future beachfront development planned (which I’ll keep subscribers to International Living magazine updated on).
Set back from the beach on a hill is a residential gated community with 4,306-square-foot lots from $50,458. The lots have ocean and forest views, and the master plan includes a swimming pool and sports facilities. Building costs run around $80 per square foot, so a 1,600-square-foot property would cost less than $180,000 (land and construction).
The beach here is uncrowded, with plenty of space for stretching out and sunbathing. What makes Coqueirinho Beach perfect is the cosmopolitan touch of tented massage tables and spa treatments on the beach itself…plush day beds…and cool world music in the background. This touch of luxury gives Coqueirinho the edge for me, creating such a serene atmosphere that you can’t help but relax.
